    Sam Walton faces terminal cancer. He's dying. What does he do? Writes a book telling you the timeless path to success...the one he took. I'll be rereading this book...several times I expect. I ran a successful business for years. No one told me what to do. I figured it out. Years later, today, Sam Walton repeats everything I was doing. This book is an exceptionally kind gift from Sam Walton and his family to you. A dying man with apparently nothing more motivating him than to do something kind for the America. Don't take it lightly.

    A Ten Year WallyWorld Associate

    This book spans the triumphs and failures of the Great Mr. Sam. Unlike his predocessors of retail empires such as Sears and Penneys , he was a modest down to earth hard working indiviual, whom never forgot his roots.

    Wal-Mart's iconic founder tells all (well, most)

    Wal-Mart is not just a gigantic retail company. It is the ultimate retailing juggernaut, setting the bar for products, packaging and pricing, and demolishing its competitors. Given its staggering influence, some would say Wal-Mart has become the very embodiment of retailing. It is the world's biggest private employer and its largest (by revenue) public corporation, with 2008 sales topping $400 billion. It has 4,264 stores in the U.S. and, with its international subsidiaries, serves more than 100 million customers weekly across the globe. The personality of Wal-Mart's late founder, Sam Walton, is still a driving force, a source of homespun, countrified wisdom and old-fashioned common sense. In this engaging autobiography, Walton explains how he built his mammoth corporation from a small five-and-dime store in Bentonville, Arkansas. The book doesn't include much bad news, but you wouldn't expect to find it here anyway. getAbstract recommends this colorful, entertaining book by America's ultimate entrepreneur. He clearly was a determined steamroller as a businessman, but he was also a charmer - and that won't surprise you either.
